A Great Start to the Week

Hallo, Effurybody!

We have found a Great New Way to get up to MISCHIEF (mol).

Mummy left the washing-up in the kitchen sink and went off to do something on her Computer Machine, and We stole lifted a couple of knives from the sink somehow and took them to play with. 

Mummy later found one of them on her bed. She still hasn't found the butter knife and We aren't going to reveal its whereabouts (heh, heh, heh).

(Actually, we aren't really sure where We hid it...)

Mummy says we shouldn't play with knives, but no harm was done and the butter was very tasty ;-)

Oh, and We have another game! Since there have been lots of sunny days of late, now that the snow has stopped, We have been able to play Chasing Sunspots almost effurry day!

We almost NEFFUR manage to catch one...

But the Fun is in the Chase!

Have a Good Week.

Princess Pixie - Two Years Gone But Always Remembered

Kitties, Woofies and Humans!

It was two years ago today, on December 23rd, 2011,  that Precious Princess Pixie flew away to the Rainbow Bridge, and not a day goes by that she isn't in our thoughts.

We would like to share a few pictures of her, for those who remember her and also, for those who never had a chance to meet her.

Early days: 

Enjoying a sun-puddle with Possum:

Double Pixie:

Time for a nap:

Attempting to hypnotise Mummy:

Being a Ferocious Feline Watch Kitty: 

And now, she is an Angel:

A New Awardie!

Hallo there, Effurryone!

We are effur so excited, Trixie and I, because our dear, sweet furriend, the beauteous and majestic Queen Katie Isabella (of Tennessee and the Surrounding Lands) has presented Me Us with a new Awardie - the Friends and Followers Award:

Isn't it beautiful? And it doesn't have as many rules to follow as other awardies. Actually, there are only THREE rules: furrst of all, post the award. DONE.
Second: thank the award-giver. 
Thank you effur so much, darling Katie (and if you should happen to be free for an intimate candlelit dinner tonight.....nudge, nudge, wink, wink - say no more...)

Third: share the awardie with a few furriends (it doesn't say how many) and notify them of the award (Trixie says that's really two rules in one, so that should be third and fourth - MOL).

Okay, so I We pass this lovely award on to The Island Cats, to Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza and Marley), and to Austin Towers at CATachresis.

We wish you - and all our other furr-iends - Shabbat Shalom and a lovely weekend!

Back to Normal - Sort of...

Hallo, Effurrybody!

Well, the snowstorm finally ended - after three whole days - and life is slowly getting back to normal. Only now, both Mummy and Caspurr have got so used to Caspurr sleeping in the Boudoir with Us (Her and Me) that I fear this is going to become a purr-manent Fact of Life. That's so unfurr! Night-time used to be My Special Time with Mummy. Caspurr would be shut on the enclosed balcony and I could roam the apartment freely, nibbling at my food whenever I felt like it, safe in the knowledge that He couldn't get at it. Now, Mummy feeds Us both before bedtime and then hides MY Bowl away so that Caspurr can't gobble up my food during the night. Unfortunately, that means that I can't snack during the night either.

Furr-themore, I used to be able to play at night, undisturbed, with my Mousie or in the Tunnel, but since being granted the Freedom of the House at night, Caspurr munched Mousie to pieces and whenever I enter the Tunnel, he pounces on Me. Sometimes, Mummy shuts Me in the Boudoir with the Tunnel - or rather, shuts Caspurr out, just to enable Me to play.

But this morning, Caspurr curled up in a Sun Puddle in the kitchen and I took advantage of the fact to snuggle up under the warm quilt with Mummy.

I do wish, though, that she wouldn't be so quick on the draw with the Flashy Box. No ladycat likes to have her photo taken before she has had a chance to make herself look presentable! Yet She can hardly wait for Me to emerge from under the quilt before She starts snapping away...

A Winter Furrytail

Hallo, Effurrybody!

It's SNOWING!  I remember snow from earlier this year, but Caspurr has never seen it before and he was effur so excited.  Of course, he had effurry reason to be in Good Spirits, because Mummy let him sleep in Our Boudoir last night. There was a terrible storm and She said it was much too cold to shut him on the balcony, even though it's an enclosed balcony, and that it would be much, much better if Both of Us were to sleep on the Bed, next to Her. 

But, as I feared, Caspurr Abused His Privileges and used the unexpected Freedom of Access to eat all My Food.

I say, Trixie, that's not fair! If you wanted it, you should have eaten it yourself. Naturally, when I saw all that food there and no-one eating it, I assumed you didn't want it and I couldn't bear the thought of all those kibbles going to waste.

Caspurr knows purrfectly well that I like to nibble my food, then go away and come back to it later for some more, rather than gobble it all down in one go as he does. Caspurr has Terrible Table Manners and what's more, he's Greedy!

Oh, don't be such a Spoil Sport, Trixie! Mummy gave you more food later, so no harm was done.

Oh, really!? No harm? Well, You should take a look at Yourself in the Mirror on Mummy's wardrobe, "Little" Brofur,  and see how fat you are getting! 

Meanwhile, Mummy says I'm much too thin and need to become nice and plump for the winter, because an extra layer of fat will help keep Me warm. What's more, I didn't get My Breakfast until quite late this morning, because Mummy slept late, after coming home at one o'clock in the morning from the Caterwauling Concert she and her choir friends took part in up north.

Hey, Trixie - talking of winter. Shall we show our furriends the pictures Mummy took of Us, enjoying the snow? It's so purrty - like in a furrytail.

The snow seems to have stopped for now, but on the Radio, they said there was more to come. Mummy says we shall all sleep together in the Boudoir again tonight. We shall snuggle up and keep each other warm. 

But I'm warning you, Caspurr - My Food is Off Limits!

House Hunting

Hallo, Effurrybody!

It looks like Mummy really is serious, this time, about getting a bigger apartment. She looked at three apartments this week and from what she told us, at least two of them would be purr-fectly acceptable to Us. One of them has a garden and a large courtyard/patio, but Mummy doesn't want to live on the ground floor because she's afraid of Burglars. Of course We would Totally Tiggerize any Intruders or Unauthorized Visitors that dared approach Our Royal Abode, but Mummy is not convinced. She's afraid We might run out into the road if We lived in a ground floor apartment.

The second apartment didn't have a garden or even a balcony, but has a huge window all along the wall of the living room with a window seat running along its entire length, where we could enjoy the sunshine. But Mummy really, really wants a balcony - and so do We! The real estate agent told her there's already a permit from the Mu-ni-ci-pa-li-ty (goodness, that's such a long word!) to build a balcony, but Mummy says She doesn't want all the hassle of having to do that herself.

The other apartment that sounded Really, Really Nice to Us has a huge veranda, partly roofed, running all round the apartment, where we could have our own Catio. That sounded Absolutely Ideal to Us - but, unfortunately, the owners are asking for lots more money than Mummy can afford. :-(

Mummy says we mustn't dis-purr. After all, it's only been a week since She started her Search and, in any case, a lot depends on how much She can get for our present apartment.

We are sure that, eventually, one way or another, Mummy will find the Purrfect Home for us all.

We will keep you posted.

Shabbat Shalom, Effurryone. Have a lovely weekend.

Hanukkah Pawty Reminder

Psst, Kitties - and any Woofies who'd like to join in and promise to behave nicely and not chase Us!

She's getting ready to go out to her caterwauling practice, and we just want to remind you that the Hanukkah Pawty (see our last bloggie post) starts at 7.30 PM Israel time tonight.

We're looking forward to seeing you all there.

Gotta go now - lots to prepare!

Trixie and Caspurr
